As worldwide happenings affect our daily life, smaller, intimate weddings of 50-75 guests take center stage. You can still dream of grandeur and luxury with trimmed guest counts. Joy amongst family and friends will soar at an intimate wedding event, creating treasured lifelong memories. Our wedding design team shares five elements that are sure to enhance your celebration with a smaller guest count.
- Give #allthefeels during the ceremony and speeches.
Smaller weddings allow for true emotional connection between all who are present. That will give your entire congregation #allthefeels during the ceremony and speeches. Smaller ceremonies also allow for a slightly longer ceremony, incorporating readings by guests, perhaps a song or hymn. Remember, you will be with your “inner circle” so the ceremony will have deeper meaning to all in attendance.
- Luxury Food & Beverage Service
Intimate celebrations enable you to elevate the food and beverage service. From table service to beverage offerings, we can add details otherwise challenging due to timing and headcount constraints. The luxury of passed hors d’oeuvres and champagne service followed by a multi-course sit down meal and miniature personal wedding cakes transforms your wedding reception’s dinner into a shared culinary adventure. Exceptionally planned cocktail menus and paired wine lists create a unique culinary experience. After dinner, incorporate activities like a ‘build your own” ice cream pops or cigar rolling, a bourbon bar and cheese cart to add another layer of interactive fun and elegance.
- True Craftsmanship is in the Details
Details shine with intimate weddings. Elegant and sophisticated details such as florals, table settings and escort cards offer limitless possibilities. Table settings might include a small gift at each place setting or a handwritten personal note from the bride and groom. Smaller weddings give more room in the budget to go grander on your centerpieces. Load up the table with flowers and taper candles for that draw dropping look you thought you could only dream of having.
- Intimate dinner music
Why not have a string quartet or a baby grand play during dinner? These detail may gets lost in a larger event, but surely adds a layer of luxury and grandeur to a smaller, more intimate gathering. There are so many advantages to a smaller wedding, and live dinner music is one of our favorite special details.
- Connecting with Every Guest
Another great advantage is truly connecting with all of the guests. At large weddings, it can be difficult, if not impossible to make time to greet each attendee. Smaller guest lists will give you time to graciously interact with everyone that has come to share your special day.
